Maca, also known as lepidium meyenii, is an annual plant that is cultivated in the Peruvian central highlands. The edible root, which resembles a radish, is a staple food for the local population. Maca has been highly regarded for over 2,000 years in Peru. According to legend, the Inca warriors ate maca for strength and endurance before going to battle. The Spanish conquistadors called it the “sex herb of the Incas”. Today it is known as “Peruvian ginseng”. Modern studies suggest that maca may promote libido, sexual potency and energy.
Women in South America have also used maca for thousands of years to help maintain their stamina, and prevent fatigue. Peruvian women begin using maca at the age of 3, and remain strong, fertile and productive, maintaining immense stamina well into their later life.

The nutritionalvalue of dried macaroot is high,similar to cereal grainssuch asrice and wheat. It contains 60% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8.5% fibre, and 2.2% lipids. Maca’s reported beneficial effects for sexual function could be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients.
Much of maca”s protein content is in the form of amino acids, which are required for many functions in the body, including sexual and fertility functions. They are also required in the manufacturing of substances that transmit signals in the nervous system and play a major role in the process of sexual arousal and physical performance during sex.
The main amino acids that these substances require include phenylalanine, tyrosine, and histidine – all three of which are found in significant amounts in maca. Maca also contains another amino acid, arginine, which may play a role in supporting male fertility and activity.
